Flu Jab? – Completely accessible information

January 11, 2019

 

The NHS ‘Help Us, Help You’, Stay Well This Winter campaign encourages you to stay well during the winter months by promoting self-care and getting the 'flu jab - particularly relevant to older and disabled people, people with long term conditions and their carers as they are at particular risk of winter illness.

 

They offer accessible information in different British Sign Language videos that we have put together below.

 

‘Flu is a highly infectious disease and can lead to serious complications. 

Make sure you get a ‘flu vaccine, if you are:

  • over 65

  • pregnant

  • a child aged 2-10

  • have a long-term health condition

  • are a carer

If you have a long-term health condition like COPD, bronchitis, emphysema, diabetes, heart or kidney disease, or have suffered a stroke; cold weather can make health problems like these much worse.

 

It can help you stay well over the winter months!
